Proud Mama Gorilla Shows Off Her New Baby at Chicago Zoo

The newest addition to the Brookfield Zoo’s four generations of western lowland gorillas has been named Ali. The baby gorilla is mom Koola’s third baby, having had Kamba, 13, and Nora, 4.

The 1-month-old gorilla is staying close to Koola, resting on her belly and loving the attention heaped on the youngest of the brood.

Western lowland gorillas are critically endangered, so news of Ali’s birth is welcomed news at the facility.
